Comments:

It's a great lens once you learn to use it. I found that I needed to manually set my aperture and shutter speed to get the desired low-light results. As someone who has always used the camera's (Nikon D50) automatic settings, this required a little work, but it wasn't that difficult and was well worth it. I now usually use the manual setting and keep my eye on the internal light meter to easily adjust the exposure by controlling the shutter speed.
